DMYTRO VYNOGRADOV                                                         


Born in Kyiv to a family of musicians—in his words, “a dynasty dedicated to art, music, and literature”—Dmytro Vynogradov received classical piano training at his country’s leading conservatories, including the Kyiv Specialized Secondary Music School and the National Musical Academy of Ukraine. Dmytro has undergone the postgraduate studies under supervision of Professor Victor Merzhanov. Rather than building a career as a musician, he went into business, specializing in the aviation, cargo, and tourism sector. Over the years, he’s served as manager, general manager, and investor for a number of projects in Ukraine and the United Arab Emirates. As an amateur pianist, he performs regularly in festivals in Germany, Italy, and France, and has won prizes at competitions in Paris, Sicily, and Colorado Springs. He remains an avid follower of the Old “Joseph Lhevinne” school of pianism, and performing the virtuoso repertoire rare transcriptions of early’ 20th century is a major priority in his musical life, as a reflection of his heritage.
